Lo Choon Sieng 20km Walk 1:32:34 - Added Gold for Malaysia SEA Games 2011

>> November 13, 2011

Malaysia has continued its domination at men's 20km walk when Lo Choon Sieng took the Gold medal home this morning (13.11.2011). He clocked a time of 1:32:34, some way off to season best 1:28:04 but fast enough to upset Indonesia's Hendro (1:33:23) in second place for silver medal. Vietnam's Nguyen Thanh Ngung went to win the Bronze medal in 1:35:48. Defending champion Teoh Boon Lim of Malaysia only managed to clock 1:37:05 for fourth (last finisher).

Lo Choon Sieng holds the second best time in Southeast Asia in 1:27:36 which he set in Nomi, Japan last year, only Malaysian Harbans Singh had faster time 1:24:50 set in Podebrady back in 1997.

Meanwhile, as expected Vietnam's Nguyen Thi Thanh Phuc defeats all other women walkers to win the Gold medal in a time of 1:43:22. Myanmar's Kay Kay Mya Tun (1:45:19) and Indonesia's Darwati (1:46:04) bagged home silver and bronze medals respectively. Former champion Yuan Yufang failed to deliver a medal after a poor performance.

Training setbacks were known to be a major cause to the defeat of Yuan Yufang. In this edition she clocked 1:48:29, over 16 minutes slower than her personal best 1:32:25.
